Dino Soldo was not only Leonard Cohen’s “Master Of Wind;” he was also the “Caliph Of Clapping.” To rev up the audience in anticipation of First We Take Manhattan, he would perform his signature above-the-head clapping. While Javier Mas and Bob Metzger would contribute as well, it was Dino who was the most emphatic. This animation depicts his efforts at the August 1, 2010 Sligo show as recorded by Albert Noonan.
